Recipe Tips

  • It’s very important to make sure the oven is not too hot as both honey and nuts can burn quite easily. If you do notice that it is starting to burn, then immediately remove the tray from the oven.
  • The dates, honey, and coconut oil are hugely important in this recipe as they help the bar stick together and not fall apart. Try not to be tempted to remove these ingredients.
  • If you’re having trouble cutting the bars, then try heating your knife up. Make sure you dry the knife before you go to cut.
  • Try to store these in a cool area as they will start to become sticky in hot weather.
